How to style: THE TESSA


In this How to Style post, I am sharing possible outfit ideas for styling our THE TESSA tote bag, just like our other guides for THE JEMMA & THE SHANTÉ. This guide is full of suggestions for customers, to help them understand what could look great with our products. It is also a great way to show how versatile our products can be. We do realise how fashion is about self-expression, but some people like having guidance on how to put together an outfit.


Our How to Style guides will hopefully show you how our products can fit within your wardrobes, but also introduce you to other independent brands, as we will be trying to use at least one independent brand within each outfit idea. Here at S&F Designs, we believe in supporting other small/indie brands, by promoting them as much as possible.


Today's guide is for THE TESSA tote bag, in this particular colour-way of Baby Pink Faux Fur, with GIRL GANG phrase. We have created five different outfit suggestions, that will work well with THE TESSA tote bag. If/When you buy a THE TESSA tote bag, you can customise it with your own colour combinations of faux fur & leather, as well as phrase, so just tailor these guides to your personalised tastes.

As a final note before the outfit guides, nothing linked below is sponsored or an AD. I have just linked them to help you find the items easily. I don't gain anything from you clicking the links. All images belong to the respective brands.
